Plant A Row, Grow A Row, Share a Row for those in need.
How often is it that you can enjoy a favorite hobby and help others in your community at the same time? The Plant a Row, Grow a Row, Share a Row program is a fun way to do both. This program invites local gardeners to grow an extra row of vegetables for donation to Edmonton’s Food Bank.
How it works:
- Plant your seeds and nurture your garden (see below for the best crops for donation.)
- At harvest simply remove the majority of the garden dirt and take your produce to the Food Bank warehouse (11508 120 Street.)
- Pat yourself on the back for a making a wonderful contribution to your community!
What crops are best to donate?
Root vegetables are best; however, any produce that can be easily handled and stored, including broccoli, cabbage, carrots, peas, beans, tomatoes, radishes, parsnips, sweet peppers, and summer squash (including zucchini) are welcome. Your donation, whether it’s a handful of green beans, a bag of beets, or a truckload of zucchini, will be appreciated and put to good use.
